I can't figure out what this structure is!

Location: KCar, Pershing County, Nevada, United States of America

It is a festival area. Some kind of music festival if I remember right. But I don't know how it is called.

A fine example of local, timely mapping at it's best - zoom in to see the glorious detail. Done by the recipient of an OpenStreetMap North Star :)

It's Black Rock City, NV. The birthplace of the online virtual world Second Life and about as close to SL as you're going to get in real life.

Why doesn't this match the aerial? Do they move it slightly every year?
